Remi Tinubu, Nigeria’s First Lady, has taken a compassionate step by distributing a significant sum of N500 million to 500 families who have been deeply affected by communal clashes and conflicts in Plateau State.

This heartfelt initiative is designed to provide much-needed assistance to these displaced families, helping them piece their lives back together and ultimately enabling them to return to their communities, which have sadly been fractured by violence.

The recipients of this generous aid were carefully selected from six different local government areas in Plateau State: Mangu, Riyom, Barkin Ladi, Bassa, Bokos, and Jos South. Each of these families received one million Naira, which will undoubtedly play a crucial role in facilitating their recovery process.

Busola Kukoyi, Special Assistant to the First Lady, announced this on Wednesday.

During the event, the First Lady advocated peace, love, and unity, saying “Let us remember that our diversity is our strength, and together, we can overcome the challenges that threaten our unity”.

She added, “To the affected families, I want you to know that you are not alone in this journey to recovery. We stand with you and extend our hands in solidarity, offering financial support and our prayers as you return to your homes and communities in safety and peace”.

Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang, expressed gratitude to the First Lady for her concern and care.

“Her being here today tells a wonderful story that after politicking, we must face governance and governance is all about the people,” said Mutfwang, adding “I assure you that we will supervise the use of the money and ensure it is used for its given purpose”.
